Inner Whispers

Hum words with pictures,
set deep in her mind,
Colors turn intense,
as she paints her rhymes.

Rhymes open deep zones,
that flow on non-stop,
they carry mixed tones,
so smooth yet quite sharp.

Sharp shadows that dance
inside of her head,
link lyrics with tunes,
sewn tight with clear thread.

Thread made of blocked dreams,
that somehow feel real,
profound messages,
made of tarnished steel.

Steel polished stainless,
reflect pretty views,
finished so shiny,
yet still far from new.

New adventures loom,
with no start or end,
instantly expands,
to somehow extend.

Extends ever far,
blasts past time and space,
intricate designs,
with touches of grace.

Graceful tough lessons,
appear in great sums,
to sketch all portraits,
her silent words hum.

– Grace Y. Estevez – Reddy

  1. Such a wonderful poem between the rough and the smooth of living and wonderful imagery Grace!
    Love this last line!
    “to sketch all portraits,
    her silent words hum.”

  2. Oh Grace, what an amazing piece! I feel like I got to know YOU better, and your poetess side. Such a magical treat to read!!!! The rhyming and flow was effortlessly graceful…loved all the β€œgrace” tie ins too πŸ€πŸ€—

  3. This was such a lovely poem to read, dear Grace! I am once again marvelled by your wonderful poetry. I liked the accompanying image too. It was so artistically pleasing. Loved your writing as always!! β™₯️

  4. A beautiful write, Grace, with chain verses connecting thoughts from one stanza to another. I like interlocking rhymes πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ’–

      1. No problem. You’re the best I’ve seen so far at WordPress. Hoping to find more talents in the community. Do you use I see many imperfect rhymes in your poetry, imperfect in its technical sense to have trailing consonants that don’t match, nothing bad about them. It’s a technical term after all, same as visual rhymes, double rhymes and stuffs like that. If you like perfect rhymes, will be your best friend in poetry writing. With technology or even AI, you’ll soon rhyme better than Shakespeare for sure. I write poems, too, only with AI assistance though. You can visit my blog to have a glimpse.

      2. Thank you. I never studied poetry and write from my heart. I enjoy it as a hobby. Thanks for the tip but I find that coming up with the words on my own is a huge part of the fun. Truly appreciate your input.πŸ’•πŸ™πŸ’•

      3. Well, fun is definitely the more important part of the process. I’m a software developer. For me, fun is to discover the patterns of poetry.
